I had a thought.

Take a look at the constitution. The second amendment says that congress (the federal government) does not have the right to take away weapons. Then in the 10th amendment, it says that states reserve all rights not given to the federal government.

So...it seems to me that an individual state can pass laws against guns if it wants to, while the Federal government is prohibited. The purpose of the 10th amendment was to allow states to govern themselves.

Granted, I would never want to live in a state like that...but that is what it seems to me.

What do you think?

If we could throw out all the Federal Bullshit and leave it all up to the states, I would be fine with that. The smart states would prosper and have freedom, the dumbass ones like NY would be fail slums until they stopped being so authoritarian.

It's my right to keep, not something that can be taken away by any government, local or federal. It is my freedom.

Then the 14th says all the bill of rights apply to all state and local governments. I personally don't agree with the principle as it was added after the civil war, but that is what it says. If the folks up in NY want to roll over for this and keep electing libtards that's their business. We'll run things like we want to down here in GA. That's the way it was designed to work, but the 14th changed all that.

This is a bit of an internal debate for me, as well. I remain torn on the root issue, however the reality of the situation is the 10th amendment died a long time ago.

What do you think?

I think you should read the NY state Constitution.

http://www.dos.ny.gov/info/constitution.htm

And http://law.onecle.com/new-york/civil-rights/

Article 2, Section 4 of the New York Civil Rights Law provides:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms cannot be infringed.

You would be right... if it weren't for incorporation doctrine.

Now if you want to debate the legitimacy of incorporation doctrine, that's another conversation. But the Supreme Court says the 2nd Amendment applies to the states.

This, and it was given to all of us by a higher power than government and therefore government cannot take it away, the Constitution and Declaration of Independence make this clear.

The BoR now applies to the states. Though it didn't always.

I'd be fine with the BoR not applying to the states if the Federal .gov was restricted to its constitutional size. Sure, some states would suck ass, but they would be states filled with ass suckers.

The bill of rights is a "hands off" list for government on every level.
There is a lot of room for states to do their own thing but within the context of the baseline rules.

States can't infringe on free speech or due process, the bill of rights is the supreme law of the land.
Read up on the supremacy clause and Fourteenth Amendment.

Well not quite. The doctrine is called incorporation and not all parts of the Bill of Rights apply to the states.

There are more than 10 Amendments.

The 14th amendment forbids the States from abridging the "privileges and immunities" of Citizens, therefore requiring the States to recognize the individual rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights.

All rights can be infringed.

Natural rights are just as subjective as anything else. The only rights you have are the ones that have been fought for to be protected. A natural right means nothing; protected rights mean everything. The only thing between a protected right and nothing is the people willing to fight for it.

In many places, economic rights (freebes) are a natural right. They fight for it, but I would bet you wouldn't consider free food a natural right.

I think that's bullshit

Wasn't there a civil war or something fought over a matter of some states doing whatever the hell they wanted? To those of us behind enemy lines, sadly, "states rights" has become synonymous with civil (gun) rights violations.

And then there is that part.



And there are many here, who have stated in no uncertain terms, that people who believe that are retards. I have not noticed many of them posting that lately, and others who have come around, or have they....

Heller ruled the 2nd protects handguns in the home.
McDonald incorporated that to the states.

Thats the scope of the 2nd under current case law.

So...it seems to me that an individual state can pass laws against guns if it wants to, while the Federal government is prohibited. The purpose of the 10th amendment was to allow states to govern themselves.

Granted, I would never want to live in a state like that...but that is what it seems to me.

What do you think?


I think Cuomos Law violates NYS Civil Service Law

§ 4. Right to keep and bear arms. A well regulated militia being
necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to
keep and bear arms cannot be infringed.

I think you're forgetting that federal law trumps state and that the Bill of Rights is a list of rights afforded EVERY citizen, regardless of state, by their Creator. Meaning the new law in NY is BREAKING federal law and suppressing the inalienable human rights of citizens.
Man has the right to self defense. All those who would use it for nefarious means may they rest in peace. All those who use it to pretect the innocent, may the live in peace.

Which version is correct?

1. Amendment II - "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

2. Amendment II - "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed by the federal government."
